Abstract:

THE CURRENT CLASS OF SMALL PISTON ENGINES AS USED IN VARIOUS REMOTELY PILOTED VEHICLES AND SMALL AIRCRAFT SUFFER FROM A LACK OF POWER DENSITY AND HIGH VIBRATION LEVELS. THE CORDRAY ROTARY ENGINE IS A NEW TYPE OF INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE OPERATING ON THE OTTO CYCLE PRINCIPLE THAT OFFERS AT LEAST A FOURFOLD INCREASE IN POWER DENSITY OVER PISTON ENGINES AND A SIGNIFICANT DECREASE IN VIBRATION. IN ADDITION, THIS ENGINE WOULD IMPROVE VEHICLE RANGE VIA IMPROVED THERMAL EFFICIENCY WHILE REDUCING MECHANICAL COMPLEXITY AND COST. THIS DESIGN ALSO WOULD IMPROVE UPON EXISTING VOLUMETRIC EFFICIENCY AND RELIABILITY. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED EFFORT IS TO BUILD AN ENGINE OF THIS TYPE ON A DEMONSTRATION BASIS. PHASE II OF THIS EFFORT WILL BE TO DEVELOP, TEST AND EVALUATE A MISSION READY PROPULSION SYSTEM.
